Randy's Guide Dog Training Trip

Hello, my name is Randy and I am requesting financial assistance in order to obtain a new guide dog.  My last guide dog, Noah, sadly, had to be put down August 9, 2014 due to health problems.  The mobility, companionship, and independence afforded a blind person is something hard to put into words.  Noah was a best friend to me for over ten years faithfully guiding me throughout my daily activities.  It is not easy to move on, but I feel Noah would want me to get a new partner to help me.  
Financial assistance provided to me will enable me to travel to California, stay there for one month, and purchase necessary equipment for my new guide dog.  I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration and possible donation to my need.
Sincerely,
Randy Dowdell
